About David

I was a substitute German teacher in the Plano ISD for several years. In this capacity, I taught all levels of German, including German IV. Due to my knowledge of the subject, I was able to continue lessons as if the regular teacher were there.

I have a B.A. in German and History from Austin College, Sherman, Texas. I studied in both Germany and Austria, where my course work was in German.

I scored over 90 out of 100 on the ExCET 049 German 6-12 test administered by the State of Texas for teachers certification. A score of 70 is considered sufficient to pass.

I speak, read and write the language fluently, having studied and worked in every German speaking country.

Having lived overseas for many years, I have a special perspective on foreign languages and culture.

As regards history, I scored in the 95th percentile on the ExCET 133 History 8-12 test administered by the State of Texas for teachers certification. A score of 80 is considered sufficient to pass.

This test covers knowledge in World History, American History and Foundations, Skills, Research and Instruction.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

German

I have a B.A. in German and History from Austin College. Importantly, I spent a junior year abroad studying German in both Germany and Austria. The course work was in German, not English. Furthermore, I lived in Switzerland for almost two years.

In Germany, Austria and Switzerland I lived like a local and communicated in German.
